I was gifted a napkin that a friend had been saving on her desk for several years. When she gave it to me, I knew it would make a wonderful BAJ page.
The napkin had an antique colored background. So I had to antique my whole page with some watercolors and distress inks.
For my layout, I cased THIS card by Monique (niki1 on Splitcoaststampers.com). I used her singular inside flower to inspire my flowers on the right. She had some sparkle in her flowers so I added some gold beads to some of the flower insides and some perfect pearls on all yellow spots on the flowers. I also added some glaze touches and used the glaze pen to do the bible verse. I found my stipple brush and also did some stippling.
Psalm 32 - the Psalm of forgiveness. David understood God's forgiveness is what gives us joy and the chance to feel fresh and new every time we pray. It is a beautiful feeling.
I also did another page this weekend. It was started as an Ink/Spray/Smash bg except I used watercolor instead of ink. Next I splattered on some left over watercolor and then stenciled on some pink ink. The words were done with a green marker outlined in black glaze pen. It was a bit bright next to my antiqued page above so I added a bit more yellow and stippled on some white paint.
